Rise from the ashes

The voice of the popular resistance movement changed from “Do you hear people singing?” to “Glory to Hong Kong”

One of the principal songs “Do you hear the people sing” from the musical “Les Miserables” has been commonly sung by protestors in fighting for freedom and democracy in Hong Kong.

The lyrics from the song “Do you hear the people sing? Singing a song of angry men? It is the music of a people who will not be slaves again!” echo the situation in Hong Kong. Thus this piece of music has been used in protests. Recently, a concert featuring songs from “Les Miserables” was held in Kwun Tong Promenade on 29-Oct.

Additionally, a song named “Glory to Hong Kong” composed by a local musician has become the “anthem” of Hong Kong protestors too. The lyrics “May people reign, proud and free, now and evermore. Glory be to thee, Hong Kong!” are considered fully reflecting the core values of Hong Kong citizens has been fighting for in the last few months.
